IT’S EASY TO HATE THE TEA PARTY
By Marilyn Snyder
There’s an old saying that you only have one chance to make a good first impression. The first impression many Americans had about the modern Tea Party was based on what they learned from the news, listening to talk shows, and hearing sound bites from influential political leaders and well-known entertainment figures. Is that where you first heard about it? Was what you heard favorable or unfavorable?
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House when the Tea Party first burst forth, called its’ members “astroturf.” Google that term—it is not complimentary.
The Vice President compared us to terrorists. President Obama called us teabaggers. Google that (and the meaning is definitively not nice).
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.): “…as far as I’m concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell.” Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.): “The real enemy is the Tea Party.”
Astroturf, teabaggers, terrorists, enemies who can go straight to…. It’s no wonder the Tea Party is so easy to hate. But are those “facts” or “sticks and stones”?

Conservative Training Coming to Redland
Much to cover in this newsletter — but first, we want to wish the USA a happy birthday on July 4! As a nation, we endured the Great Depression, we won World War II, and we vanquished communism. If we can do that, we can overcome the Obama Administration and defeat his IRS.
We will not have our monthly meeting on July 4 since that’s our nation’s birthday. Instead, we will host a booth at the all-day celebration at Sylvan Park. Continue reading Conservative Training Coming to Redlands
You Literally Can’t Spell ‘Liberals’ Without ‘IRS!’
Mucho news in this newsletter! You lose if you don’t read every word!
First, a big “Patriot thanks” to everyone who dropped everything on no notice May 21 and protested the IRS in front of its downtown San Bernardino building. We made a great impression and a great statement (we even had the Department of Homeland Security come out to observe us)! Our protest, among many nationwide, is why a recent Rasmussen poll pegged the national Tea Party movement favorability rating at 44 percent — a 14 percent jump since last year.

What Did the President Know and When Did
He Know It?
We are awash in Watergate-era quotes and flashbacks now that the media has finally caught on to
what we’ve known for years; namely, Barack Obama is an arrogant tyrant who will step on the
US Constitution to gain ever more power.
With luck, prayers and evidence, congressional investigators will find the proof linking Obama to the
IRS Scandal he obviously engineered. The media is loathe to admit that one of the drafted articles of
impeachment against Richard Nixon involved the abuse of the IRS to punish political opponents.
